Jboss AS7 come with Hibernate 4 (even if it still in beta :-)! if you still use hibernate 3 as JPA provider in your application and you want to deploy it in Jboss AS7 ... you may know it's possible ... Humm yes you can do it just by creating a module for hibernate3 under your Jboss AS7 (how powerful server is !). So you just need to:
* Create a folder in AS7_HOME\modules\org\hibernate\3 for slot 3 to hold your hibernate 3 jars.
* Copy the hibernate 3 associated jars into this folder. For example:
* Create the AS7_HOME/modules/org/hibernate/3/module.xml file with contents :
That's it, your module now is available on your jboss 7 server, all you nedd to link it with your application is to add the followed property to your persistence unit :
Note the org.hibernate:3 on your jboss.as.jpa.providerModule property ;-)
